Published to coincide with the five-hundredth anniversary of Cabot's voyage and with the construction of a replica of the Matthew , this book provides a richly-illustrated glimpse at the dawn of the Age of Exploration.

Drawing on paintings, maps and illustrations from Europe's finest museums, Brian Cuthbertson brings to vivid life the places and events that shaped Cabot's life, and his age, setting down available information on the original trip and the uncertain evidence of Cabot's landfall in North America. Photos of the Matthew replica being built and under full sail also illustrate the text.

John Cabot & the Voyage of the Matthew is a vivid, colourful evocation of the spirit of a great explorer and his times.
